Specsavers in Tamworth went back to school as it donated high-visibility vests to two local schools. 

Specsavers in the Ankerside Centre donated the bright vests to Moorgate Primary School and St. Leonard’s Church of England when they attended the school assemblies on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 November. Staff from the opticians will talk to the youngsters about eye health during a ten minute presentation. This activity forms part of Specsavers’ support, as a co-sponsor, of Road Safety Week (17-23 November).  

Children can also pick up a free vest when they go for an eye test at the store throughout November and December.

Lisa Large, store director at Specsavers in Tamworth, said: ‘It’s great to work with local schools as part of this nationwide initiative, which really focuses on children’s safety. Now the nights are drawing in, it really is the time to think of the welfare of children when walking to and from school.

‘We’re also encouraging children to pick up a free vest when they pop in for a sight test throughout November!’

Specsavers stores across the country are donating high-visibility vests to local schools as part of an initiative to keep local school children safe when out and about this winter. 

Road Safety Week is organised by Brake, the national road safety charity which helps to save lives and support people bereaved by road crashes.
